A vibrant and compact city, Dublin has a pace and energy quite at odds with the relaxed image of Ireland as a whole. Prosperity generated by the Republic’s economic boom has brought fundamental changes to the life of its capital, reversing the tide of emigration and creating a dynamic cultural centre.

Dubliners are fiercely proud of their city, and while DUBLIN is the Republic of Irelands capital it is quite apart from, and can be dismissive of, the rest of the country - one Dublin wag once remarked with characteristic caustic humour that "the only culture outside Dublin is agriculture". Over the past decade, as young people from rural Ireland and all over Europe, gravitate toward the city to share in the wealth, not experienced since Dublins much celebrated Georgian heyday, this urban/rural divide has started to wane.

As a result Dublin exudes the style and confidence of any cosmopolitan European capital - most apparent at night when Dubliners party with a panache verging on the reckless. Dublins economic upturn is impacting on the citys rapidly changing urban landscape too, with restaurants, cafés, bars and clubs opening in abundance, and Dublins famous pub scene is now matched by an equally celebrated club scene.

The transformation to top of Europes economic class has cast the city economically and culturally into the heart of the continent. This new-found cosmopolitan chic has its home in the vibrant Temple Bar area, "Dublins Left Bank", with its numerous pubs, clubs, galleries and restaurants. However, for many visitors, the citys heart lies around the best of what is left of Georgian Dublin - the grand set pieces of Fitzwilliam and Merrion squares, and their graceful red-brick houses with ornate, fan-lighted doors and immaculately kept central gardens, and the wide but strangely decorous open space of St Stephens Green.

The elegant southside is also the setting for Dublins august seat of learning, Trinity College and its famous library where you can see the exquisitely ornate Book of Kells ; Grafton Street , the citys upmarket shopping area; and most of the citys museums and art galleries.

North of the Liffey, the main thoroughfare is OConnell Street , on which stands the General Post Office , the scene of violent fighting in the Easter Rising of 1916. Further north, among Georgian squares older and seedier than the ones youll see on the southside, are the Dublin Writers Museum and the Hugh Lane Gallery . West again, and you come to Dublins biggest open space - indeed, one of the worlds largest city parks - Phoenix Park , home of both the Presidents Residence and the zoo.

The urban sprawl quickly gives way to the genteel villages which punctuate the curve of Dublin Bay, from the fishing port of Howth in the north, to the southern suburbs of Sandycove with its James Joyce connections, Dalkey , made famous by the comic writer Flann OBrien, and salubrious Killiney , now colonized by the rich and famous. Added to this is the fact that Dublin must be one of the easiest capitals to escape from, making it a good base for exploring the hills and coastline of Wicklow to the south and the gentler scenery to the north that leads up to the megalithic monuments of the verdant Boyne Valley .
